The buildings that surround us say a lot about who we are and the culture we live in. And they can have a big impact on the way we feel - think of the 'brutal' concrete structures from the 1960s and '70s compared to the soft curves of Birmingham's Selfridges building or the colours of a Cotswold stone village.

I was not a fan of the Occupy LSX camped at St Pauls. I had an open mind to begin with and if anything, instinctively lent towards them. On the day Ed Miliband was reported to be in support of them I went down to check out the scene. Let's just say I wasn't impressed.

It is humanity that this occupation of St. Paul's serves. It is inhumanity that it has the great honour to resist.

The picture would be quite different if the top 1% were our country's doctors and teachers. A study by the New Economics Foundation has shown that leading city bankers, with incomes of £500,000 or more, destroy £7 of social value for every £1 they earn. By comparison, hospital cleaners generate £10 of social value for every £1 they earn.

Change doesn't happen overnight and persistence will be key to success. The tents will eventually disappear, but the knowledge acquired and the connections made during the time at St Paul's will remain as valuable building blocks for the future.

St Paul's Protests: is it Time to Liberate Theology?

Mike Ion | Posted 01.01.2012 | UK Politics
Mike Ion

The true message of liberation will always result in some people feeling uneasy. To side, as many liberation theologians in the 1960s and 1970s did, against injustice, to commit one's life to the poor is not a political stance but a moral one.

Tents, Frocks and Strops

"What would Jesus do?" everyone is asking. It's not outrageous to suggest that he would regularly sip a West End cappuccino with a prostitute friend on one side, and a desperate drug addict on the other. Certainly, the complexities of the modern world wouldn't scare him off.

World Leaders Need to Agree to the Robin Hood Tax at G20

Bill Nighy | Posted 03.01.2012 | UK Politics
Bill Nighy

Today, Bill Gates will present a report commissioned by President Sarkozy that will recommend G20 leaders adopt Robin Hood taxes as a way of fighting poverty and climate change. It is a real opportunity and one the G20 needs to grasp.My hope is that a group of willing leaders will use Cannes as an opportunity to press ahead with Robin Hood taxes to fight poverty in their own countries and overseas. It would be great if David Cameron joined them. For one thing it would make me and possibly the St Paul's protesters a little less angry.
